Small Public Works & Professional Services Rosters

This roster will be used at the County’s discretion to contract for public works projects under $300,000. To be on the roster, you will need to complete our standard application.

 Thurston County Public Works is also developing a Professional Services Roster to allow for contracting for professional services such as engineering and architectural services in accordance with RCW 39.80.040, and for other professional services such as cultural/historical investigation, biological studies, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: All previous roster memberships will be invalid as of January 1, 2015, and you will need to reapply.
